GraniteShares Surpasses $300 Million in Assets Under Management

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

GraniteShares, a new, innovative ETF company, has attracted more than $300 million in assets under management (AUM)*, to its low-cost commodity** and income ETF suite on the heels of the firm’s one-year anniversary.

GraniteShares was able to cross this threshold after reporting strong inflows across its ETF product suite, most notably to the GraniteShares Gold Trust (NYSE Arca: BAR). BAR, the low-cost gold ETF with a total expense ratio of 20 basis points, surpassed $200 million in assets after only 10 months of trading.

Since inception, BAR and the other ETFs on the GraniteShares platform have continued to gain momentum as more investors recognize the potential benefits of diversifying their portfolios with commodities. We believe GraniteShares’ cost effective, No K-1 fund structures make its ETF suite an attractive choice for investors looking to hedge against rising inflationary indicators, a weaker dollar and periods of stock market volatility.

“We’re delighted to see investors embrace our growing suite of low-cost ETFs in today’s market,” said Will Rhind, Founder and CEO of GraniteShares. “From the beginning, our mission at GraniteShares has been to provide unique solutions for common pain points experienced by investors. This swift accumulation of assets on our platform is a testament to our approach of seeking to bring disruptive solutions to market with better structures and lower management fees.”

GraniteShares launched at the end of May 2017 to strong investor interest in the firm’s two flagship broad-based commodities ETFs (COMB and COMG). The firm has since debuted BAR, the lowest-cost** physical platinum ETF (PLTM) and a high alternative income-focused ETF that invests in pass-through securities (HIPS).
